进一步,期望便携式通信设备10将包括某些类型的警告信号,当接收到一个输入呼叫时,该设备将提供这些信号。 Further, the portable communication device 10 will be desirable to include some type of warning signal when an incoming call is received, the device will provide these signals. 为了节省用于给便携式通信设备10供电的电池、以及减少起源于所提供的几种警告信号的任何混乱,当警告系统加电时,可以利用第一部件14自动关闭便携式通信设备10的此类警告信号。 To save for a portable communications device powered by the battery 10, and reduce any confusion originating from several warning signal provided by, when the warning system is powered up, the first member 14 may be utilized to automatically turn off the portable communication device 10 such warning signal. 另外,第一部件14可以提供任选地关闭便携式通信设备10的此类警告信号的能力。 Further, the ability of the first member 14 such alert signal optionally closing a portable communication device 10 may be provided.

为了更好地分别理解第一和第二部件14与16的操作,在图6和图7中提供了流程图并据此加以解释。 To better understand the operation of each of the first and second members 14 and 16, a flow chart in FIG. 6 and FIG. 7 and accordingly explained. 如在图6中所看到,为了检测振铃指令,第一部件14的控制电路24通过总线接口20连续地监视便携式通信设备10的系统总线。 As seen in Figure 6, in order to detect the ringing instruction, the control circuit 14 of the first section 24 of the bus interface 20 continuously monitors the system bus 10 via the portable communication device. 一旦检测到用于便携式通信设备10的振铃指令,控制电路24启动收发信机22,而收发信机22利用天线23接着向附属部件16发送一个振铃指令消息。 Upon detecting an instruction for the ringing of the portable communication device 10, the control circuit 24 starts transceiver 22, transceiver 22 and the antenna 23 then sends a ring command message to accessory parts 16. 将会明白,如果可用,呼叫者ID或其他源标识信息将附加在净负荷域48中的振铃指令消息里面。 It will be appreciated, if available, caller ID or other source identifying information will be appended to the payload field 48 of the instruction message inside the ring.

发送完振铃指令消息之后,控制电路24的逻辑除了如上面那样为了检测振铃指令而监视系统总线之外,还要监视收发信机22以确定其是否被附属部件16所返回的一个应答指令消息所中断。 After the ring command message has been transmitted, the control logic circuit 24 detects the ring in addition to instructions that monitor the system bus, as described above, should also monitors transceiver 22 to determine whether it is a reply command subsidiary member 16 is returned news interrupted. 在其中还启动一个定时器以将此动作限制在一段指定的时间内(例如,10秒)。 In further starts a timer to limit this action within a specified time period (e.g., 10 seconds). 因此,将会发现,控制电路24首先确定是否已经过了指定的时间。 It will thus be found, the control circuit 24 first determines whether a specified time has elapsed. 如果回答是肯定的,控制电路24将使收发信机22进入无效状态。 If the answer is yes, control circuit 24 will cause the transceiver 22 enters an inactive state. 如果回答是否定的,控制电路24接着确定是否已检测到了一个振铃指令。 If the answer is no, the control circuit 24 then determines whether a ring command has been detected. 如果回答是肯定的,控制电路24使收发信机22向附属部件16再发送一个振铃指令消息。 If the answer is yes, the control circuit 24 causes the transceiver 22 to transmit a ring command message attachment member 16 again. 如果回答是否定的,控制电路24接着确定是否已检测到了对收发信机22的一次中断。 If the answer is no, the control circuit 24 then determines whether the detected interrupt to transceiver 22. 如果收发信机22从附属部件16接收到一个应答指令消息,并因此被中断,控制电路24将检测到此事件并向便携式通信设备10的系统总线写入一个应答指令。 If the transceiver section 22 receives from the attached instruction reply message 16-1, and therefore is interrupted, the control circuit 24 will detect this event is written to the system bus of portable communication device 10 a response command. 控制电路还优选地使话音响应部件36能播放预先录制的“等待”消息。 The control circuit preferably enables voice response member 36 can be played "wait" pre-recorded message. 此后,控制电路24将使收发信机22进入无效状态并返回初始的监视系统总线以寻找振铃指令的状态。 Thereafter, the control circuit 24, transceiver 22 will enter the inactive state and returns to the initial monitoring the system bus to search instruction ringing state.

关于附属部件16,在图7中将会看到,其中控制电路32为了接收由第一部件14的收发信机22所发送的振铃指令消息(通过天线25接收)而监视收发信机28。 About subsidiary member 16, it will be seen in FIG. 7, in which the control circuit 32 in order to receive a first member 22 by a ring command message (received by the antenna 25) sent by transceiver 14 and the transceiver 28 monitors. 在检测到振铃指令消息之后,控制电路32的逻辑优选地将输入呼叫的源识别信息(呼叫者ID)写入附属部件16的显示器50。 After the ring command message is detected, control information source identification logic circuit 32 is preferably of the incoming call (caller ID) written to the display 50 of the attachment member 16. 控制电路32接着启动换能器30持续一段指定的时间,以便提供与其相关的警告信号。 The control circuit 32 then start the transducer 30 for a specified period of time, to provide a warning signal associated therewith.

控制电路32接着监视是否因响应警告信号而启动了信令开关34,其中在检测到信令开关34已启动时,将向收发信机28发送一个中断以便将其发送给第一部件14。 The control circuit 32 then monitors whether or not the warning signal is activated in response to a result of the signaling switch 34, wherein upon detection of signaling switch 34 is activated, the transceiver 28 will transmit an interrupt in order to send it to a first member 14. 这是在控制电路32为了检测振铃指令消息而继续监视收发信机28之外而进行的。 This is the control circuit 32 detects the ring command message to continue to monitor transceiver 28 than carried out. 进一步,将启动一个定时器以测量这些动作之一发生之前所持续的时间。 Further, a timer starts to measure these actions take place before one of the duration. 因此,控制电路32首先确定是否已过了指定的时间周期(约10秒钟)。 Thus, the control circuit 32 first determines whether a specified period of time has elapsed (about 10 seconds). 如果指定的时间周期已过,控制电路32将清除显示器50的显示并返回去监视收发信机28。 If the specified time period has elapsed, the control circuit 32 clears the display and returns to display 50 monitors transceiver 28. 如果时间周期还没有过去,控制电路32确定是否检测到了振铃指令消息。 If the time period has not elapsed, the control circuit 32 determines whether the detected ringing instruction message. 如果是,其将使换能器30再次启动以用于提供另一个警告信号。 If so, it will re-start the transducer 30 for providing a further warning signal. 如果否,控制电路32确定是否信令开关34已启动。 If not, control circuit 32 determines whether signaling switch 34 has been started. 如果信令开关34已启动,收发信机28向第一部件14发送应答指令消息,以便其中的控制电路24能够引导输入呼叫。 If signaling switch 34 has been activated, transceiver 28 transmits an instruction message to the first response member 14, so that the control circuit 24 which is capable of directing an incoming call. 否则,它再次开始确定是否已过了指定的时间周期。 Otherwise, it began again to determine whether a specified period of time has elapsed. 在发送完应答指令消息之后,控制电路32的逻辑经过一段时间的延迟而清除附属部件16的显示器50的显示。 After the reply message has been transmitted instruction, the control logic circuit 32 after a time delay and clears display 16 of the display 50 of the attachment member. 控制电路32返回去监视收发信机28以便接收来自第一部件14的振铃指令消息。 The control circuit 32 returns to monitoring transceiver 28 for receiving the ring member 14 of the first instruction from the message.

虽然已经示出和描述了本发明的优选实施方案,但是在技术上不脱离本发明的范围的情况下,普通的技术人员进行适当修改,可以实现对用于便携式通信设备的输入呼叫警告系统进行进一步的改变。 While there has been shown and described preferred embodiments of the invention, but in the case without departing from the scope of the present technical invention, ordinary skill in the art by appropriate modifications, can be achieved on an incoming call alert system for a portable communication device is further changes. 特别是,将会明白,多于一个的附属部件16可以链接至一个单独的与便携式通信设备有电连接的第一部件14,由此其中多于一个的用户可以被告知有输入呼叫。 In particular, it will be appreciated that more than one subsidiary member 16 may be linked to a single first member 14 is electrically connected to the portable communication device, whereby more than one of the user can be informed of the incoming call.
